Microsoft has been working on a second-half of 2022 update (22H2) for Windows 11 for quite some time, now rumored to launch on September 20th, 2022, and according to some sharp eyed Windows followers, this latest update may become known as the “2022 Update.”
One user, @XenoPanther, noticed the name on his “getting started” page (via XDA):

… and SherlockHolmes over at Thurrott saw the same thing and tipped the site. More rumors have Microsoft moving away from the once or twice a year cadence that Windows has been trying to settle on for a once in three years full version update with intermittent “Moments” featue updates that could come as often as four times per year.
No matter what the name or date, we’re expecting Windows 11 22H2 to begin to be offered to non-Windows Insiders soon, and for Microsoft to begin to reveal what’s next for Windows 11 and beyond.
